All-girls Rodeo, Fair At Kualoa

It’s time for some ropin,’ some toe- tappin,’ and all-around paniolo style fun at Kualoa’s third annual Ohana Country Fair and All-Girls Rodeo.

The ranch will host activities from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Saturday, including food booths, crafts, games, a petting zoo, keiki horse rides and hayrides. For the more daring, there’s a mechanical bull at 1 p.m., and for adults, a beer and wine garden opening at 2.

Presented by Hawaii Women’s Rodeo Association, event feature barrel racing, roping, all-around champion cowgirl and more. Food options will reflect the down-home country theme, and a farmers market will feature produce grown at the ranch. For the kids, there will be shave ice and popcorn.

In the entertainment lineup are the Gordon Freitas Duo at 2:30 p.m., Country Stone at 3:30 p.m., and Dita

Holifield & Red Handed at 5 p.m. At 6:15, Edgy Lee’s Paniolo O Hawai’i will be screened. The documentary is a result of Lee’s three years of research into the history of Hawaii’s cowboys and ranchers.

“This annual event is truly a celebration of our heritage as a working cattle ranch,” said Kualoa president John Morgan. “This year, we’re delighted to partner with Edgy Lee to offer guests the opportunity to see Paniolo O Hawai’i, a classic film that shares vivid accounts of the history of our island’s paniolo.”

Fair admission is $2 with keiki 12 and under admitted free. Film tickets cost $5 and $2 (ages 3 to 12) including popcorn. Visitors can also purchase a dinner and film package for $20 and $6.
